April 29, 2011
MADISON, Wis. -- Indiana men's tennis moved to the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament by defeating Purdue 4-2. The Hoosiers got key wins from All-Big Ten honorees Jeremy Langer and Josh MacTaggart to seal the deal. The win is the 23rd of the season for IU, the most ever in a single season for a Hoosier team.
After the Hoosiers quickly took the doubles point with wins at numbers one and two, freshman Dimitrije Tasic took down J.F. Engelbrecht at number six by a 6-2, 6-1 score. The Boilers then battled back with wins at four and five to tie the score at 2-2.
That was when Langer and MacTaggart answered the call. Langer closed out his three-setter 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 over Mark Kovacs, and then MacTaggart sealed the win with a 6-4, 7-6 win over Krisztian Krocsko.
The Hoosiers return to action at the Big Ten Men's Tennis Tournament on Saturday, squaring off with Minnesota in the semifinal.
